Description - AC/DC by Martin Popoff

In-depth discussions of each of AC/DC's 16 studio albums, illustrated with photography and memorabilia and moderated by prolific rock journalist Martin Popoff.

Formed in 1973, AC/DC became one of the most popular and bestselling bands in rock history with their no-frills approach to loud, heavy, and sweat-drenched blues-based rock music. This new book from prolific rock journalist Martin Popoff pays tribute to the band's discography by moderating in-depth and entertaining conversations about all 16 of AC/DC's studio albums, every page illustrated with thoughtfully curated performance and offstage photography and rare memorabilia.

Popoff gathers 20 rock journalists and authors who offer insights, opinions, and anecdotes about every release. Together, the conversations comprise a unique history of the band, covering everything from early lineups; the role played by the Youngs' older brother, George; the songwriting and legendary antics of original vocalist Bon Scott; the mega tours undertaken in support of the LPs; the debut of singer Brian Johnson on the band's mega breakthrough, Back in Black; the band's fallow 1980s and 1990s resurgence; and later difficulties, such as Malcolm's onset of dementia and the legal problems of drummer Phil Rudd.
